In honor of Black History Month, here’s Part 1 of a list of 20 books that every young Black child should own/read. I feel this list is important because Black children need to see themselves in the books they read. Feel free to add to the list!

BTW, I added Corduroy because the girl in the book was Black, which was considered controversial at the time, since the author, Don Freeman, was White.
